Tire Failure Analysis

Tire Failure Analysis

An inspection of the subject tire and vehicle is done to identify the origin and cause of a tire failure. Our tire expert (featured on Nancy Grace Crime Stories) will inspect the tire to determine the factors that may have led to the failure, such as tire use and abuse, tire wear, signs of over deflection (underinflated and/or over loaded), road hazards, impact damage, tire aging factors, foreign materials, improper maintenance, manufacturing defects, or road hazards to aid in the identification of the origin and cause of the tire failure. In addition to inspecting the tire, the vehicle fitment will be confirmed along with the service provided by tire service stations confirming proper tire placement, rotation, repair, and tire fitment. When a tire failure occurs, it is crucial to call a tire expert who can discern how and why a tire failed.  A tire expert has knowledge of tire design, construction, development, manufacturing, testing, and the recommended use of various tires. This knowledge allows a tire expert to quickly identify common defects which can cause or contribute to a tire failure.
